    Remember last year when Syd was trying to "Hall of Fame" all of the Unova Dex Pokemon? Yeah, I'm doing a simmilar challenge in which I must capture every new Pokemon I find and have all of the Pokemon at the same level (The lowest level Pokemon and the highest level Pokemon cannot have more than a 5 level diference).

    I have a feeling this challenge will get extremely challenging/tedious once I get to Brycen/Drayden and have 40+ Pokemon to train :U

    I did a Hall of Fame Challenge as well and beat Syd >:3 But Syd unnecessarily has all the Pokémon's levels raised to 70+, which isn't needed, I only trained mine to 60.

      Yeah, I remember you said you did it aswell. Congrats if you finished it!

      Right now, I just beat Chili (Snivy ftw?) and caught Munna. I now have 7 team members. Going to transfer my 11 Pokemon from my brother's White Version that I transfered from my Black Version to the game .-.

      We weren't in a race, especially since we had different standards, lmfao. I included Petilil, and the three event Pokemon that aren't released and I go to level 70, most of the time. Trying not to do that this round because the Excadrill I have is level 81. Do I REALLY need level 70s alongside that? No, I don't. lol And it's not "unnecessary" leveling. I like being overlevel, so in my world, it's perfectly fine. Get yo facts straight.

      I used Petilil too at lv60...

      I know we weren't a race, I'm just generally competitive. xD And believe me, I like being overlevelled too, all my team was on lv64 before I challenged the E4 on White the first time.

      I took in an underleveled Watchog lol. I was ready to just get that team over with and get back on track with this challenge. I should be finishing it by March if everything goes well. :D And I'm competitive as well, but to the point where I'll get really mad at people, so I just like to not think of myself in competition with anyone. XD Otherwise I'd be angry all the time! ...And we don't want that... :3

      You could've raised that Watchog to lv100, it would've still been pretty useless other than statusing other Pokémon. I suppose that thought of competition made me work harder at it.

      Watchog was good against...wild Audino. lol Also, I'd like to know what everyone's up to! What challenges y'all are doing and what not. :) I'm doing Hall of Fame, Tier, Christian, and a shiny run. So...busy as usual with these. Working on Tier challenge right now though, cause I've had a hankering to play Gold lately haha. About to go and face Morty.

      Well, I'm starting my Random Pokemon Challenge. I'm also doing a non-official Nuzlocke Challenge (non official as in not posting on any threads) in Crystal. Other than that, nothing. I'm trying to keep myself limited as to how many i do at one time, that way i can keep up with myself on it all.

        I'm still working on soloing with all 88 fully evolved pokemon in Red/Blue.

        Other than that, I just finished a Nuzlocke on Silver, and a Duo on Gold.

        Pretty much doing everything that's on the first two gens.

          Hey guys,

          So haven't played for ages and am getting back into the games and am looking for a challenge. And then I stumbled upon this gem on YouTube:

          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4bHkEacbFXk&feature=youtube_gdata_player

          For those who don't want to watch it, here's what it basically is:
          Since you CANNOT exit Pewter before defeating Brock, this guy filled his pokedex to the MAX before he did so. Eg:
          Starter line FE level 36
          Pidgey line level 36
          Nido m&f level 16
          Butterfree. level 10
          Beedrill. level 10
          Pikachu
          Spearow. level 20

          Pretty sure thats all of it.

          Anyway, so here's the challenge: do this for EVERY region, and also before EVERY gym. Everyone will have exactly the same result, but I reckon I might give it a go. Maybe on Sapphire or Ruby.

          What do you guys reckon?

          I guess you could go for that! I personally wouldn't haha. The grinding would be insane, and doing that in BW would be nearly impossible...oh Lord...haha.

          Actually, you can, albeit only by a glitch:

            Fine, be that way....

            Alright, WITHOUT glitching you can't do it. Still, I was thinking it over, and the sheer scope of it is intimidating. In Hoenn I think it's around 35 or so. What have I got myself into???

              Also you forgot Rattata.

              I grinded a Charmander to 36 for a Zard once without delivering Oak's Parcel. It was over a ~2 week span. Didn't want to play too much to tire myself out.

              I wouldn't have the patience for that. I barely have the patience to get this Dratini in Gold to level 20, let alone 30. lol

              ^That's why I pop those babies in the Daycare, get on my bike, and travel up and down from Goldenrod to the Route over and over again. Especially if I'm using an emulator. Super speed + Bike = VERY fast level up. It's really helpful in challenges and whatnot.

                Don't really know why I don't try this. I guess most challenges are easy enough without bike grinding for me.

                I really only do it for Pokemon with a slow experience rate. Other than that I'll train off of Tentacool/cruel. Miltank and Tauros are beautiful for it, too.

                I've done this a once before. It was the only thing I could do while I was at school, with my laptop screen at an unseeable angle, with my keys on the arrows going back and forth while listening to the teacher. You just have to be careful to make sure that a move that you want doesn't get taught over in the older gens.

                Ugh, that's the most annoying part. Having to go to their moves, switch them around to the moves I don't care about them losing, going back a few levels later, take them out, switch moves again, rinse, repeat...
                It got annoying. But once I sat for ten minutes with my emulator on hyper speed for yellow, and my Lapras grew fifty levels. So it was pretty boss.

                But moneyyy. :( Unless you're doing this in post game, then sure, that's fine. But money is hard to come by, especially in GSC it seems. Then again, I was scraping for coins and blowing my money constantly...lol

                I never bought anything until I reached Goldenrod anyway, so I'd usually have around 15k. :'D
                So i had plenty to spare for a few levels. But yeah, unless you do what i did, money is always hard for those games. Everybody is poor in Johto.

                  I usually buy an Abra from the game corner (200 coins, = 4,000) and the three punches (3,000 each), so I have 13,000 total, but then I backtrack and beat all the trainers between Ilex Forest and Goldenrod, as well as the trainers between National Park and Goldenrod. SO I'm sure I'd have another 2K at least from all that.

                  I know what you mean about the money. Though it's only really a concern when you buy things from the Game Corner, those darn TMs in G/S/C and Dratini in R/B.
